Species?

Post by Jess4400 » Mon Jun 12, 2017 1:30 pm

What species is this crab? We found them in the Fort Walton Beach area. We put them back in the ocean when we were done. They had a dark body with yellowish stripes on the legs. Narrow pincher. Skinny legs. Freaky long eyestalks! ImageAny ideas?ImageImageImageImage
